Which is why we are continuously baffled by the unfortunate choices made in the world of fitness fashion. Could anyone actually work out in these?!

    Okay, so, Redfoo isn't about to win any bodybuilding competitions. But hey, he works out and he's proud of that scrawny body! We could probably all use a little more of his attitude, come to think of it. Maybe just leave the Speedo at home... <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyx6JDQCslE&has_verified=1" target="_hplink">Watch the full video here.</a>
